We had a great great week this week but today is a busy day so here are the highlights:

#4. We just found out today imma gettin transferred to Memphis! It'll be my first time in 9 months serving in a full Spanish area (I have been English and Spanish from the beginning). And I will be with Hermana Lewis! I'm super excited but also sad to leave Russellville-it's a great place to be!

#5. I read in the Old Testament in Exodus 16:11-36 and it stuck out to me how much faith they had to have in order to gather double the amount to prepare for the day of rest. Some had tried to gather more than their share so they didn't have to go out early the next morning, they could just keep it in storage. But the Lord made it a daily thing, so they had to gather just the right amount every day. Then they find out they have to gather double the amount on the 6th day in order to prepare for the 7th day in which there would be no manna. How often do we not trust God and this simple commandment? It's interesting that we often just allow ourselves to do a few things in Sunday to prepare for the week instead of faithfully preparing the week before, even the Saturday before. Things are busy and we often feel like we don't have time, but God doesn't give us commandments we can't keep. I want to be better at preparing myself and my apartment and things like that to be ready for the Sabbath Day and to keep it holy. What a blessing!

I love the gospel, I know the Book of Mormon is true.
